first_imgGAYSTARNEWS- The finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 3 has dropped. And it wouldn’t be a Drag Race show if it didn’t feature twists and turns at every corner.After a lacklustre season with only a few surprises scattered throughout, the top four queen battled it out to win a ‘coveted place in the Drag Race Hall of Fame’.All season, Bebe Zahara Benet, Shangela, Kennedy Davenport and Trixie Mattel had their charisma, uniqueness nerve and talent on display.Each of the four queens had won at least won one challenge during the season, with Shangela winning the most at three.Of all the remaining queens, Bebe had only been in the bottom once with the other landing in the bottom multiple times.Ok, spoilers are really coming nowRuPaul opened the episode telling the queens they’d compete in the standard lip synch challenge to one of his songs and add their own unique verse.The queens thought this would be a fairly conventional challenge until guest choreographer, Todrick Hall revealed the number would be performed live in one single take.All four queens performed to a moving camera backstage, eventually making their way to the main stage to complete the fabulous number.Drag race judges Michelle Visage, Carson Kressly and Ross Matthews also made an appearance in the number.Wait, there’s another twistRuPaul dropped another bombshell on the girls. The bombshell was that after the judges’ critiques the eliminated All Stars 3 queens would be deciding who made it into the top two.

To get Travelweek delivered to your agency for free, subscribe here.TORONTO — Turkey is making a comeback, with tourists returning in droves this past year following the sharp fall in value of the Turkish Lira. The over 40% dip in value, according to IATA, is blamed largely on a diplomatic rift with the United States and a renewed focus on Turkey’s heavy reliance on capital inflows. A recession seems likely but, as history has shown, when economic troubles increase, so too does the number of tourists in search of cheap prices.As per July 2018 figures, tourist arrivals in Turkey increased by 11.74% compared to July 2017. In the first half of 2018 (January-July), the number of tourists increased by 24.9% over the same period the year before, reaching to 21,639,802. Among them are thousands of Canadians, with 59,893 arriving between January and July 2018, an increase of 33.78% compared to the same period in 2017.These numbers are in sharp contrast to those that predate 2017, when events that took place the year prior, including a failed coup and terror attacks, resulted in a 23% decrease in international tourist arrivals. But it didn’t take long for Turkey to recover. Sandra Carvao, Chief, Market Trends and Competitiveness for the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) tells Travelweek that Turkey’s tourism numbers rebounded quickly – and strongly – in 2017 with a 30% increase, a trend that is continuing in 2018.Grand Bazaar, Istanbul“Tourism in Turkey picked up in 2017, mainly from the second quarter onwards, growing at double-digit monthly rates. International arrivals rebounded firmly in 2017 to reach 37.6 million,” she says, citing the recovery of the Russian outbound market, promotional efforts and new infrastructure development as contributing factors. “Turkey has a wide and unique offering of cultural, heritage, urban, sun and sea tourism products and continues to diversify its tourism offer.”More news:  Consolidation in the cruise industry as PONANT set to acquire Paul Gauguin CruisesSelcuk Unal, Ambassador of Turkey to Canada, tells Travelweek that due to the momentum gained in 2017, 2018 and beyond are looking hopeful. “2018 is a good year, with increased number of tourists. Like in 2018, we expect tourism figures to continue to rise in great numbers in 2019 as well.”Unal, who wants to remind travel agents that Turkey is a safe country with no major attack against civilians in the last two years, adds that current exchange rates have made prices cheaper in all Turkish tourist destinations compared to one year ago. That said, he also adds that the government won’t be resting on its laurels when it comes to economic reforms.“Our government fully recognizes all the global ongoing economic challenges, and is taking the necessary steps in order to achieve a healthier reevaluation of the Turkish Lira,” he says.Until then, Turkey’s most popular destinations are reaping the benefits of the low currency, including Antalya, Istanbul and Cappadocia. Antalya, says Unal, broke new records in incoming tourists who came in search of sun, sand and excellent golf facilities.Tour operators are also reporting comeback numbers to Turkey, including Intrepid Travel, which says the country is its fastest-growing destination to date in 2018 with an incredible 214% growth in global bookings compared to 2017. This comes after the company experienced a 73% drop in global bookings to the country between 2014 and 2017.Bosphorus views, Istanbul“This impressive growth shows that the rebound has been rapid and that travel to the destination is nearly back to where it was four years ago, when travel to Turkey was at an all-time high,” says Megan Bailey, director of sales and customer experience for Intrepid Travel in North America. “Our current bookings show that travel to Turkey is continuing on a rapid upward spike in 2019l. In line with 2018 growth, we are seeing a nearly 300% growth in 2019 bookings.”More news:  Onex paying big to get WestJet and that will send airfares soaring, says CWTWith bookings back up, Intrepid has launched three new itineraries for 2019: the 10-day ‘Turkey Winter Discovery’; the eight-day ‘Turkey Highlights’; and the three-day ‘Taste of Istanbul’ for clients in search of a quick introduction to the destination.“Instead of shying away from the country based on current economic relations, Intrepid Travel is increasing operations in Turkey to encourage travellers to visit the beautiful country, year round,” adds Bailey. “These new trips are a celebration of our travellers’ genuine acceptance of the world we all share and are, more importantly, helping a country find hope through tourism.”Bailey also notes that air connectivity for Canadians has never been easier (“Turkish Airlines has the largest flight network in the world”), plus Istanbul’s highly anticipated new airport is scheduled to open next month (“It is expected to become the busiest airport in the world”). Coupled that with a wealth of land and sea offerings, Turkey has emerged as a breakout destination for 2018-2019.On the many reasons for Canadians to visit, Unal says: “Turkey is ready to welcome more Canadians. With cities steeped in history, beaches and natural wonders, Turkey promises unique vacation experiences for all visitors.” Posted by Turkey rebounds thanks to low Lira, tour ops & travellers coming back in droves Friday, September 28, 2018 Tags: Turkeylast_img read more

Violence drives women to flee Central Americas Northern Triangle

first_imgRelated posts:Costa Rica sees spike in refugees driven by Northern Triangle violence Costa Rica serves as a corridor for Asians, Africans migrating to the US Guatemala-Honduras customs union first step in regional development plan US to spend $750 million to attack Central America poverty woes WASHINGTON — Late last year, Norma — the wife of a police officer from El Salvador — was abducted by four members of the M18 street gang, taken to a nearby cemetery and raped repeatedly.“They took turns. They tied me by the hands and stuffed my mouth so I wouldn’t scream,” Norma said, adding that when it was over, “they threw me in the trash.”After the vicious attack, Norma went to live with her aunt and uncle in another city; she changed her phone number and never left the house. But the M18 gang continued to threaten her and her children. Having no other option, she and her husband decided she should leave El Salvador. Norma fled through Mexico with a coyote, or human smuggler.In Gloria’s case, the victim wasn’t her, but her 13-year-old grandson. She said members of an armed criminal group kidnapped him.“When we finally found his body, it was at the morgue,” she recalled. “They had cut his head off, tied his hands and feet, and cut him all over.”Complaining to the authorities in these countries is often useless.Natalia, a native of the Mexican state of Michoacán, went to police after masked men broke into her home, abducted her common-law husband and left in a federal police vehicle. A forensics official eventually showed her a tortured body, telling her, “this is what they do to people who ask too many questions.”All three women, whose names have been changed to protect their identity, are now living in the United States with asylum applications pending. They were among 160 women interviewed in August for a study issued last week by the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR).“Women on the Run” is 56 pages of first-hand accounts by refugees from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras — known as the Northern Triangle countries — and Mexico, as well as a description of the violence, persecution and lack of government protection that forced them to flee.“Most of the headlines are about Europe, Syria and Iraq, but this must no longer be ignored,” said U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres. “Organized crime and violence have dramatically increased in Central America and Mexico, with the countries of the Northern Triangle leading the world’s homicide ranking. As a result, more and more people are seeking asylum in the United States and elsewhere.”Guterres, a former prime minister of Portugal, said that since 2008, his agency — which operates on an annual budget of $7 billion — has recorded a five-fold increase in asylum seekers arriving to the U.S. from the Northern Triangle region of Central America. It’s also seen a nearly 13-fold jump in asylum seekers from the same countries arriving in Mexico and other parts of Central America.“Sixty percent of children arriving at the southern U.S. border [in 2014] and nearly half arriving in Mexico were victims of violence, up from only 13 percent in 2008,” he said. “This report emphasizes the urgency of the crisis. It looks at women, what forces them to flee, and what risks they face along the way.” Copies of a report by the UN Refugee Agency, “Women on the Run,” which focuses on violence perpetrated against women fleeing Central America’s “Northern Triangle.” Larry Luxner/The Tico TimesGang-controlled neighborhoods; No protection from authoritiesOf the 160 women interviewed by UNHCR, 63 are from El Salvador, 30 each from Honduras and Guatemala, and 37 from Mexico. All have either received asylum from U.S. immigration authorities, or have at least been found to have a credible fear of persecution or torture if returned to their home countries.“These women were raped, assaulted, extorted and threatened by members of heavily armed transnational groups,” said Guterres, who is stepping down in December after 10 years at the helm of UNHCR. “They spoke about their families having to contend with gunfights and death threats. They watched family members being abducted and murdered. The authorities often struggle to contain this violence, and many of these women are left with no choice but to run for their lives.”Guterres added: “Becoming a refugee is always an ordeal, but believe me, for most of these women, the journey to safety is absolute hell. That’s why the protection of women and children is a core priority for UNHCR globally.”Among the report’s findings:85 percent of women interviewed described living in neighborhoods controlled by armed criminal groups.64 percent described direct threats and attacks by such groups as at least one of the primary reasons for their flight.58 percent of women from Northern Triangle countries gave accounts of sexual assault and sexual abuse.100 percent of the women interviewed who reported attacks, sexual assaults, rapes or threats to the police said they received ineffective protection, or no protection at all, from the authorities.10 percent of the women interviewed said the police themselves had persecuted them in their home countries.“This report makes a very important contribution,” said Doris Meissner, former commissioner of the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service and now a senior fellow at the Washington-based Migration Policy Institute. “It forces us to deepen our understanding of what’s going on in our own neighborhood and stimulates much more consideration of what we need to do.”According to U.S. government statistics, 82 percent of the 16,077 women from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and Mexico who were interviewed by U.S. immigration authorities in 2014 were found to have a credible fear of persecution or torture, and were allowed to pursue asylum claims in the United States.“No country is more dangerous for women than El Salvador,” said Guterres. “Each day, more and more people are forced to flee. The region hasn’t seen such violence since the civil wars of the 1980s, but none of the women we interviewed could find safety by turning to their own government.”He added that Washington must pay more attention to the refugee crisis brewing in this hemisphere.“What we are witnessing today is a mixed movement made up of people who likely have a fear of persecution, and others mainly moving for economic reasons,” he warned. “All of them have human dignity and rights that must be respected. But countries have the obligation to grant protection to people fleeing. This is not the first refugee crisis in the Americas region, but it is unique — and I’m convinced it can only be solved by a regional approach.”Costa Rica increasingly a destination for Northern Triangle refugeesThe United States isn’t the only place to which refugees are fleeing. Last year, according to UNHCR figures, Costa Rica received more asylum applications from Salvadorans than Colombians for the first time ever. And Mexico has seen a 65 percent jump in asylum cases in a single year, even while facing its own high levels of violence.Some 40 percent of women surveyed by UNHCR didn’t even report the crimes they fled, believing the police would not only be ineffective but perhaps even criminally involved. A huge red flag, said Eric Olson, associate director of the Wilson Center’s Latin America Program, is the fact that 69 percent of these women fled somewhere else within their country before leaving altogether.“Often, the justice system in these countries is dysfunctional, and only 3 or 4 percent of cases are actually prosecuted fully and end up with some kind of sentence,” Olson said. “The prospects of avoiding violence by holding people accountable is almost non-existent for most poor women.” Loris Guzzetta/UNHCRNorma, who’s living at an undisclosed U.S. location as she awaits the outcome of her asylum case, said she’s still traumatized by the gang rape she suffered in El Salvador.“I feel dirty, so very dirty. This is why I wake up not wanting to live,” she told UNHCR interviewers. “Sometimes, I wake up and think it was just a nightmare, but then I feel the pain and remember it was not.” Facebook Commentslast_img read more

Man arrested after Myanmar unrest

first_imgYANGON, Myanmar (AP) – A man accused of posting online photos from violent clashes between displaced Muslims and security forces was arrested in Myanmar’s restive state of Rakhine, police and an activist said Wednesday.It was not immediately clear what charges Than Shwe, a 29-year-old Rohingya Muslim, would face.A police officer who refused to give his name because he was not authorized to speak to the media said the man was trying to cause trouble during the visit of U.N. human rights envoy Tomas Ojea Quintana, who was touring the strife-torn region. One person was killed and 10 others injured, he said.Than Shwe, who works for an organization that delivers food and supplies to camps for Rohingya Muslims, was accused of posting images of the dead and injured online, Aung Win said.Twenty officers went to his home at 4 a.m. on Monday and brought him to the police station, he said.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

They have clashed several times with security forces in recent months.The most recent unrest occurred after the body of a fisherman was found in a creek near Ohn Taw Gyi camp on Friday, said Rakhine state spokesman Win Myaing, who called it a drowning.But rumors quickly spread that the man had been beaten to death by police.“He was bleeding from both ears. It looked like he had been smashed in the face by a rifle butt, all his teeth were gone,” said Aung Win, a well-known Rohingya activist who saw the body before burial. “This wasn’t a drowning. He was pretty clearly beaten and tortured.”A dispute over the death and custody of the body sparked several riots, which were broken up by police who fired first into the air and then into the crowd, Win Myaing said.

Windstar Cruises announces return to Asia

first_imgWindstar Cruises announces return to AsiaWindstar Cruises announces return to AsiaWindstar Cruises’ second season for the 212-passenger Star Legend in Asia kicks off in the northern Autumn of 2018 after the vessel’s inaugural Alaska season in the upcoming Summer months.The return to Asia for Windstar in 2018/19 will bring four new cruises, as well as the recurrence of four of the company’s most popular cruises from its 2017/18 season sailing in the region for a total of 27 sailings.Windstar has increased departures for popular Japan cruises timed with its famous cherry blossom season and spectacular fall foliage. New Asia itineraries include a comprehensive exploration of greater China; an Asian ‘pop culture’ journey from Tokyo to South Korea and Beijing; a Thailand and Malaysia cruise big on beaches and big cities; and a new itinerary discovering Indonesia, including magical Bali.“Windstar is able to do so many things in Asia that only small ships can do,” said Windstar President, John Delaney.“We can sail up rivers and dock in the central areas of Shanghai, Ho Chi Minh City, and Bangkok. We can anchor off Patong Bay in Phuket, Thailand and small islands in Indonesia like Pulau Bawean on the Java Sea. We visit small ports in the Philippines giving our guests access to places found at the top of Condé Nast Traveler’s Best Islands and Best Beaches lists. Places like Palawan, home to the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River, one of the new seven natural world wonders, and beautiful Boracay with white sand beaches perfect for snorkelling. All of our itineraries are carefully crafted by knowledgeable experts with scenic cruising and active exploration in mind. Our new Star Collector sailings have been extremely popular. They combine in-depth itineraries into longer back-to-back sailings, meaning real time for travellers to discover ancient traditions and contemporary cultures.”Windstar also offers a variety of pre and post cruise packages in Asia, including a foray to Angkor Wat from Bangkok and a visit to Beijing’s Great Wall.In addition, Windstar offers more than 200 shore excursions in Asia in 2018/19, including experiences like visiting a traditional Malay home, exploring Komodo National Park on foot, and participating in a night tour of Shanghai with dinner on The Bund (Asia’s most famous street).The following new 2018-19 Asia cruises are now open for booking: Comprehensive Indonesia Exploration The 11-day Singapore to Bali (Benoa) (or reverse) cruise includes notable stops in Jakarta and Semarang in Indonesia, where guests can explore Dutch trading buildings in the Old Quarter or a day trip to Borobudur, the Buddhist temple and UNESCO World Heritage Site that dates back to the 8th century. Guests can take a stroll along alabaster-sand beaches on Bali or check out the steaming vents on restless Mount Bromo, one of Indonesia’s most spectacular volcanoes. This cruise is the best way to dive in-depth to the culture, breathtaking landscapes and Komodo dragons of Indonesia. And for relaxing, Windstar offers two ‘beach days’ on two small islands – Pulau Bawean and Pulau Menyawakan, remote locations where only small ships and ferries go unless guests charter a flight. The cruise occurs over the Christmas and New Year holidays, with Christmas Day in Jakarta and New Year’s Eve in Komodo National Park.Thai Temples, Malaysian Monarchs  The 11-day Bangkok to Singapore cruise sails along the coasts of Thailand, Malaysia, and China and is perfect for those big on beaches and natural beauty as well as contemporary urban wonders. Ports alternate between relaxing and exploring in off the beaten path beaches and buzzing metropolises, and an overnight in Phuket means time for dining, dancing, or watching nightlife beneath the neon glow of a thriving waterfront along Patong Bay. Guests can dine on pungent durian or warm naan bread paired with spicy tandoori chicken among the varied and distinct aromas of the Jonkers Walk street food and restaurant fare in Malacca. Vault skyward in a double-decker elevator to the breathtaking observation deck on the 86th floor of Petronas Towers high above Kuala Lumpur. Snorkel or swim off the quiet shores of an isolated beach near Langkawi. This cruise concludes among the buzzing scooters and towering skyscrapers in thriving Singapore.Comprehensive China Exploration  The 11-day cruise from Hong Kong to Beijing (or reverse) visits the four major cities in greater China, including Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong, and Taipei, with overnights in both Shanghai and Hong Kong for extra exploration. The cruise also stops at Ishigaki Island, Japan, known for clear waters and coral reefs and Qingdao, China – the home of Tsingtao Beer and a former German outpost/colony. Soak in powder blue hot springs and taste the umami of oyster pancakes and stinky tofu offered by Taiwanese street vendors. Climb the Great Wall for an unparalleled view of China’s past and to the Star Bar for an unparalleled view of your yacht in the present.Pop Culture Kings of Asia  The 11-day cruise from Tokyo to Beijing (or reverse) is a balance of big, modern cities like Tokyo, Osaka, Seoul (via Busan), and Beijing in addition to smaller and more off-the-beaten path places like Karatsu, Japan and Tamano/Uno port in the Inland Sea of Japan. J-pop, Harajuku culture, and Korean dramas are born from the centre of Asian pop culture – Japan and South Korea, and on this sailing, Windstar guests can shop up a storm in the largest underground mall in Seoul and admire the lasting grace of geishas with overnights in Busan and Osaka. But perhaps the most stunning experience is taking in the view cruising the Inland Sea and mixing equal parts pop culture and cultural heritage throughout the journey.Longer sailings such as the returning Star Collector: The Grandeur of Southeast Asia, a 26-day cruise from Singapore to Bangkok (or reverse) combine Windstar’s most popular itineraries for an even more in-depth exploration of each region and multiple country visits. Star Collector Voyages in Asia range from 14 to 47 days, feature few repeat ports to hidden harbours and classic cities, guest speakers, free daily laundry and unpacking once, the ultimate in convenience allowing more time to get closer to the diverse places the ship will visit.New for 2018/19 in Asia for Windstar are Star Collector: Shrines and Cities of Asia, a 22-day cruise from Tokyo to Hong Kong; and Star Collector: Epic East Asia, a 47-day cruise from Bangkok to Tokyo departing 8 February 2019.Four itineraries in Asia that Windstar is offering again include Grand Japan, a 10-day voyage perfectly timed for Autumn colours and cherry blossom seasons – arguably the two best times to be in Japan; Icons of Southeast Asia, a slightly shortened 12-day cruise from Hong Kong to Bangkok (and reverse); The Best of the Philippines & Borneo, a 14-day cruise from Singapore to Hong Kong; and Malay & Singapore Sojourn, a seven-day Singapore roundtrip cruise that now features an overnight in Phuket (new for 2018).Bookings to be directed to Windstar Australia on 1300 749 875 or reservations@windstar.com.auWindstar Cruises operates a six-ship fleet of small sailing and all-suite ships visiting hundreds global ports in 2018 and 2019 sailing throughout Europe, the Caribbean, Costa Rica and the Panama Canal, Asia, Alaska, Canada and New England, and cruising year-round in Tahiti.
